Here's my card:

Love and Sympathy Card

Happy Saturday,

I'm back for another post. I'm also participating again in the latest Sketch Frenzy Friday 011113 sketch. This sketch is great! Thankfully I won't be sending out the sympathy card right now, but it's good to keep some on hand for when it's needed. I like the pattern in this Festival of Prints DSP. I find that many of the designs are suitable for anytime of the year and not just for Christmas.

Here's my card:

CS: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla
DSP: Festival of Prints DSP Paper Pack
Stamp Set: Love & Sympathy
Ink: Soft Suede
Tools: Decorative Label Punch, Extra Large Oval Punch

Thanks for stopping by,

Here's my card:
